Xanadu was extraordinary! I stayed there in September...the staff was INCREDIBLE. Extremely friendly- above and beyond, re-defining the meaning of customer service- Stacey and ShirleyMae were FANTASTIC hosts. They will ensure a smooth, stress-free, and easy vacation for you! The resort was extremely friendly, laid back, gorgeous, relaxing, and unpretentious. Unlike some of the other hotels we biked by on... More

I was traveling solo during my time on Ambergris, and had the good fortune to happen upon Xanadu while walking down the beach from San Pedro town. It caught my attention because it was so beautiful and so mellow at the same time. I relocated from the sub-par in-town hotel where I had been staying, and absolutely LOVED Xanadu and... More

My wife and I stayed here for 4 days in November. The room we had was very good, not beach facing, but everything is so close thast it really didn't matter. Walking to town was definitely no big deal, except that it can get pretty warm along the beach. The whole staff was warm and friendly and very helpful. The... More

We are happy to learn that this couple enjoyed their stay as much as we enjoyed hosting them at Xanadu Island Resort. We strive to provide personal service that makes a difference. While we were sorry to hear that the guests boarded the incorrect boat, we did check with them to ensure they still enjoyed the tour, and arranged to... More

We had our wedding at Xanadu Resort a few weeks ago and we could not have wished for a better experience. Stacey, Su, Orlando, Ingrid and Shirleymae were very friendly and made sure that our stay was seamless and stress free - they took care of everything right away. Our friends and parents are still raving about how great the... More

I got married at this resort in February. I was very nervous to have a wedding at a resort I'd never been to and to trust the management to help set up the reception. I was so pleasantly surprised. The first thing to note is the hospitality is wonderful. These people are ORGANIZED. The wedding and reception turned out just... More

Stayed in the 2 bdrm condo (suite #1), and it was very clean and nice, with a beautiful view of the pier. The pool provides a serene atmosphere, and the pier a nearby place to snorkel and swim. The full kitchen was very useful for coffee and breakfasts each morning. The office allows free bike rentals, which are VERY handy... More

My girlfriend and I spent 7 nights at Xanadu and had a wonderful time - Suite #1 is right on the ocean and a nice view to wake up and end the day to. I echo what all the other reviews said! The only issues are the mosquitos and rain (cave tubing was canceled) in October, but on the plus... More

My new wife and I spent our honeymoon at Xanadu (Oct. 19-26). We LOVED it. The staff is constantly working to keep the place tidy-- raking the grounds, cleaning up foliage, etc. It shows. The lofts (we stayed in #15) were very spacious, cool, and comfortable. We used the kitchen area to prepare breakfast every moring. They had all the... More

This small resort is located right on the ocean and the condos are clean, modern and very safe. I traveled with my aunt and son and we all loved the staff (especially Ingrid, Shirley, Orlando, and Isaiah). The pool is pretty and the staff helps you to arrange any type of trip or activity you desire. However, if you go... More

We recently spent our honeymoon at Xanadu in Ambergris Caye. It was an amazing experience. The resort itself is beautifully maintained and the staff and service was always exceptional. It felt like our home while we stayed there. The snorkeling tours we took with Alphonse were amazing too, Mexico Rocks is a must see!!! Thank you all for such a... More
